EVENT OVERVIEW

DEVNATION FEDERAL
JUNE 5, 2018  |  FHI 360 CONFERENCE CENTER, wASHINGTON DC

Open source communities are the driving force behind innovation in today's technology defined world. From Google & Facebook, to the revolutions being undertaken in communities around Node.js, Kubernetes, and containerization - open source communities will continue to reshape our industry for the coming future.  

This change is not limited to industry - the federal government has a long history of wielding open source technologies to fight their battles.  From building and driving socioeconomic programs throughout the civilian world to the front lines with our men and women in the armed services, open source technology has taken a role.  

DevNation Federal is an opportunity for you to hear how teams in the federal government are using open source technology today, as well as hear from visionaries leading similar technology efforts in the private sector.  Hear their perspective on how the use of open source technologies has transformed their businesses.

For Developers, by Developers. Help us continue to build our community.
